Japan Somewhere Special Edition

Maki

Publisher: Zen Foto Gallery

This special edition comes as a box set limited to 20 copies. In addition to the photobook (signed), it includes a photographic 8x10 gelatin silver print created by Maki himself (of a motif included in the book). All 20 prints feature the same motif and are signed on the back.

The photobook “Japan Somewhere” by French photographer Maki includes images taken between 2001 and 2015 during many visits to Japan. The high-contrast black-and-white photos, from streetsnaps to portraits, landscapes and the occasional erotic image, paint a manifold picture of Maki’s extensive experience of Japan while avoiding the common mistake of needless orientalism.
Says Russet Lederman in her essay “A Journey to Japan Somewhere”: “Maki approaches photography as a series of open-ended encounters experienced from both inside and outside Japanese culture. (...) "Japan Somewhere" travels both figuratively and literally into Japan’s back alleys.”
